Highlighted Up Coming Events

King Harvest Ministry

A HUGE thanks to everyone who is helping with the special ministry.  For years our church family has supported the King Harvest ministry by providing sandwiches and dessert each Tuesday evening during the winter months to the folks who spend the night in the shelter. Due to COVID-19, the shelter is not opening. The great news is that the ministry remains active by utilizing a hotel in northwest Davenport.

Bethel Wesley’s Mission and Outreach Ministry has pledged to cover the 1st and 3rd Tuesday from December through March, with about 83 people being served nightly. We will provide dinners that include at least a sandwich, a piece of fruit, a dessert, and a bottle of water. <!–split–>

A committee members may contact you to help. If you are ready and willing to make a donation to this project, we are asking for volunteers to contribute 83 sandwiches, 83 desserts (homemade or purchased), bottles of water, or cash to purchase the items needed to complete the meal like fruit or chips.

Most of our opportunities to serve the community have been cancelled due to COVID. Please prayerfully consider getting involved in this rewarding ministry.

If You Are Hospitalized

Due to patient confidentiality laws, if you or a family member are hospitalized, please let the Pastor or Kara Ade know. When you check into the hospital, let them know that your church is Bethel Wesley UMC and/or have a friend or family member call the church  to inform us.

Suspension of Indoor Worship – Parking Lot Will Continue

Bishop Frank J. Beard has extended hid instructions churches in the Illinois Great Rivers Conference not to meet indoors rest of December. Our church building will be closed during this time except for Secretary and Custodian. Sunday worship will continue to be broadcast at 10:00 AM in the parking lot at FM 98.3 and live streamed on YouTube.

Please keep our country in your prayers as we struggle through this challenging holiday season. A lot of traditions cannot be followed. Maybe we can find some new traditions. Call somebody you haven’t seen recently or who might be alone this holiday. Share God’s love.

Be safe and wear mask when you must go out.

Grace and Peace.

Remembrance Tree

This difficult year we are planning a special “Remembrance Tree” in front of the office. Paper doves with your loved one’s name on it will decorate the tree along with blue lights. Please email (or call) the office with your loved one’s name and we will make sure they are remembered this Christmas

King’s Harvest Ministry

For years our church family has supported the ministry of King Harvest by providing sandwiches and dessert each Tuesday evening during the winter months to the folks who spend the night in the shelter. Due to COVID-19, the shelter is not opening. The great news is that the ministry remains active by utilizing a hotel in northwest Davenport.

We have the opportunity to continue to provide the least among us with a meal. Bethel Wesley’s Mission and Outreach Ministry has pledged to cover the 1st and 3rd Tuesday from December through March. We will provide 50 dinners that include at least a sandwich, a piece of fruit, a dessert, and a bottle of water. <!–split–>

Since we will not be in the building for awhile to fill out the sign-up sheet, committee members will make phone calls to find out how you would like to help. If you are ready and willing to make a donation to this project, we are asking for volunteers to contribute 50 sandwiches, 50 desserts (homemade or purchased), bottles of water, or cash to purchase the items needed to complete the meal like fruit or chips.

Most of our opportunities to serve the community have been cancelled due to COVID. Please prayerfully consider getting involved in this rewarding ministry.
